A Creative Practice by Jason Campbell   .   Curating a thread between architecture, photography, performance, and sculpture.


Seeking space to feel deeply...a resonance between

the quiet, the rational and the unhinged.

Here, there is no singular interest or type. Obsessions surface unknowingly and priorities shift as they need to, yet this flow aims to arrange disparate parts that typically exist in tension - what we thought wouldn't fit, wasn't possible, wouldn't make sense, or what we weren't ready for.


To get there, we need the time and care the work deserves.

ell curates the intersection of architecture, photography, performance, and sculpture, operating to reappraise the purpose and range of our processes, lexicon, and design sensibilities. While priorities shift as needed, the work is heavily informed by the spatial dualities and incongruencies found between spaces we co-opt and our daily lives.

Recent inquiries have delved into; reconstructions and imaginaries of the post-colonial home through memory, photograph, and perspectival drawing technique; the Society for Care And Maintenance: an organization and performance concerned with acts of care, introspection, and the Oakland, CA streets; and ell.SF: a 5-year research initiative that prioritized the spatial and operational condition of art production via a co-opted commercial storefront space.

Jason has lectured nationally and has taught undergraduate and graduate advanced option studios at UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design. His design studios have prioritized the immaterial and programmatic dimension of urban remodeling, the productive tensions between incompatible programs, and leveraging existing architectural tropes into new ways of living.


He holds a Master of Architecture from UC Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning.
